There was an old Spanish Civil War module for ASL which did include chapalians too!

Argentinian "Flash" unpredictability works like this--anytime the Brits and the Argies roll the same dice roll for Initiative, the Argies "flash" for that turn. Which means they get to roll another die for their attacks and pick the best one. Keeps the Brits from getting too froggy, as they roll eight-sided die rather than six-sided die for their ranged attacks (marksmanship), even thought they are often a firepower point less than their Argie opponents. Brits have rules for Resiliency (when shaken, there's a chance they can rally before melee) and when in good order are really deadly in melee (especially the Gurkhas). One cool thing is that the Argentinians get chaplains! Not too many games feature that!

Can you give more details about the Argentinian "Flash" unpredictability?

Just got my copy of the Lock 'N Load BAND OF HEROES module for the Falklands War, RING OF HILLS. Gorgeous package as is standard for this company. Anybody else get one? Anyone else give it a spin? I want to but won't have time for a while. Some of the rules unique to the module look quite interesting--particularly Brit marksmanship and Argentinian "Flash" unpredictability!
